At C1 level, students will be able to make effective use of a highly extensive lexical range which enables spontaneous and autonomous fluent communication at an advanced level.

The smooth and fluent flow of communication might only be hindered at times, when dealing with a particularly unknown or unfamiliar topic. In such cases, students should still be able to use circumlocution as they will have developed the necessary skills which enable them to gain time whilst thinking about the details that they would like to convey. Generally speaking, students will know how to manage clear and cohesive productive output that is connected in a logical and fluent manner showing full control over their speech. C1 students will be able to face the challenges of dealing with longer and more complex tasks and still be aware of inference or implicit meaning. They will fully comprehend the difference between formal and informal contexts and will be able to adapt their skills for academic, professional and social purposes, making use of appropriate organisational patterns, linkers and cohesive devices.
